Rate Case Overview

As a regulated utility, we file a rate case request when the costs of providing safe and reliable natural gas or electricity exceed what customers are paying in rates.

Rates are set through a transparent process with the Commission, the body that regulates investor-owned electric utilities in the state, and the proceedings include opportunities for public input and participation all along the way.

Utilities are required to provide a detailed forecast of how we would structure our operations and make investments. The Commission then reviews the information, with public input from customers, business groups, cities and agencies, and other special interest organizations before making a decision.

Energy Saving Tip

Install ceiling fans to keep cool air circulating so you can turn down your air conditioner. Still, make sure to turn off your fan when you leave the room.
